According to a NEW (Really? Is this new? I think I heard this a few years back but anyway) study, a popular artificial sweetener may cause you to gain weight! Saccharin the key ingrediant in Sweet'n'low apparently caused mice to eat more and gain weight. This is not news to the Diet Diva. I use splenda, but there have been studies that say splenda has a similar side effect. Apparently when we think we are eating something low in calories we go and eat something else because we, well, we can. This was recently released in another study when it turned out people were consuming more calories when they ate at Subway than good old McDonalds!
